1 Samuel 16 Text (WEB)
  1. Yahweh said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him from being king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go. I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite; for I have provided a king for myself among his sons."
  2. Samuel said, "How can I go? If Saul hears it, he will kill me." Yahweh said, "Take a heifer with you, and say, I have come to sacrifice to Yahweh.
  3. Call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do. You shall anoint to me him whom I name to you."
  4. Samuel did that which Yahweh spoke, and came to Bethlehem. The elders of the city came to meet him trembling, and said, "Do you come peaceably?"
  5. He said, "Peaceably; I have come to sacrifice to Yahweh. Sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice." He sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
  6. It happened, when they had come, that he looked at Eliab, and said, "Surely Yahweh's anointed is before him."
  7. But Yahweh said to Samuel, "Don't look on his face, or on the height of his stature; because I have rejected him: for [Yahweh sees] not as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but Yahweh looks at the heart."
  8. Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. He said, "Neither has Yahweh chosen this one."
  9. Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. He said, "Neither has Yahweh chosen this one."
  10. Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. Samuel said to Jesse, "Yahweh has not chosen these."
  11. Samuel said to Jesse, "Are all your children here?" He said, "There remains yet the youngest, and behold, he is keeping the sheep." Samuel said to Jesse, "Send and get him; for we will not sit down until he comes here."
  12. He sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful face, and goodly to look on. Yahweh said, "Arise, anoint him; for this is he."
  13. Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brothers: and the Spirit of Yahweh came mightily on David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
  14. Now the Spirit of Yahweh departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from Yahweh troubled him.
  15. Saul's servants said to him, "See now, an evil spirit from God troubles you.
  16. Let our lord now command your servants who are before you, to seek out a man who is a skillful player on the harp. It shall happen, when the evil spirit from God is on you, that he shall play with his hand, and you shall be well."
  17. Saul said to his servants, "Provide me now a man who can play well, and bring him to me."
  18. Then one of the young men answered, and said, "Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, who is skillful in playing, a mighty man of valor, a man of war, prudent in speech, and a comely person; and Yahweh is with him."
  19. Therefore Saul sent messengers to Jesse, and said, "Send me David your son, who is with the sheep."
  20. Jesse took a donkey loaded with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a young goat, and sent them by David his son to Saul.
  21. David came to Saul, and stood before him. He loved him greatly; and he became his armor bearer.
  22. Saul sent to Jesse, saying, "Please let David stand before me; for he has found favor in my sight."
  23. It happened, when the [evil] spirit from God was on Saul, that David took the harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

  14. ורוח יהוה סרה מעם שאול ובעתתו רוח־רעה מאת יהוה׃
  15. ויאמרו עבדי־שאול אליו הנה־נא רוח־אלהים רעה מבעתך׃
  16. יאמר־נא אדננו עבדיך לפניך יבקשו איש ידע מנגן בכנור והיה בהיות עליך רוח־אלהים רעה ונגן בידו וטוב לך׃ ף
  17. ויאמר שאול אל־עבדיו ראו־נא לי איש מיטיב לנגן והביאותם אלי׃

  20. ויקח ישי חמור לחם ונאד יין וגדי עזים אחד וישלח ביד־דוד בנו אל־שאול׃
  21. ויבא דוד אל־שאול ויעמד לפניו ויאהבהו מאד ויהי־לו נשא כלים׃
  22. וישלח שאול אל־ישי לאמר יעמד־נא דוד לפני כי־מצא חן בעיני׃
  23. והיה בהיות רוח־אלהים אל־שאול ולקח דוד את־הכנור ונגן בידו ורוח לשאול וטוב לו וסרה מעליו רוח הרעה׃ ף

  7. και ειπεν κυριος προς σαμουηλ μη επιβλεψης επι την οψιν αυτου μηδε εις την εξιν μεγεθους αυτου οτι εξουδενωκα αυτον οτι ουχ ως εμβλεψεται ανθρωπος οψεται ο θεος οτι ανθρωπος οψεται εις προσωπον ο δε θεος οψεται εις

1 Samuel 16 Text (Latin)
  1. Dixitque Dominus ad Samuelem : Usquequo tu luges Saul, cum ego projecerim eum ne regnet super Israël ? Imple cornu tuum oleo, et veni, ut mittam te ad Isai Bethlehemitem : providi enim in filiis ejus mihi regem.
  2. Et ait Samuel : Quomodo vadam ? audiet enim Saul, et interficiet me. Et ait Dominus : Vitulum de armento tolles in manu tua, et dices : Ad immolandum Domino veni.
  3. Et vocabis Isai ad victimam, et ego ostendam tibi quid facias, et unges quemcumque monstravero tibi.
  4. Fecit ergo Samuel, sicut locutus est ei Dominus. Venitque in Bethlehem, et admirati sunt seniores civitatis, occurrentes ei, dixeruntque : Pacificusne est ingressus tuus ?
  5. Et ait : Pacificus : ad immolandum Domino veni, sanctificamini, et venite mecum ut immolem. Sanctificavit ergo Isai et filios ejus, et vocavit eos ad sacrificium.
  6. Cumque ingressi essent, vidit Eliab, et ait : Num coram Domino est Christus ejus ?
  7. Et dixit Dominus ad Samuelem : Ne respicias vultum ejus, neque altitudinem staturæ ejus : quoniam abjeci eum, nec juxta intuitum hominis ego judico : homo enim videt ea quæ parent, Dominus autem intuetur cor.
  8. Et vocavit Isai Abinadab, et adduxit eum coram Samuele. Qui dixit : Nec hunc elegit Dominus.
  9. Adduxit autem Isai Samma, de quo ait : Etiam hunc non elegit Dominus.
  10. Adduxit itaque Isai septem filios suos coram Samuele : et ait Samuel ad Isai : Non elegit Dominus ex istis.
  11. Dixitque Samuel ad Isai : Numquid jam completi sunt filii ? Qui respondit : Adhuc reliquus est parvulus, et pascit oves. Et ait Samuel ad Isai : Mitte, et adduc eum : nec enim discumbemus priusquam huc ille veniat.
  12. Misit ergo, et adduxit eum. Erat autem rufus, et pulcher aspectu, decoraque facie : et ait Dominus : Surge, unge eum, ipse est enim.
  13. Tulit ergo Samuel cornu olei, et unxit eum in medio fratrum ejus : et directus est spiritus Domini a die illa in David, et deinceps : surgensque Samuel abiit in Ramatha.
  14. Spiritus autem Domini recessit a Saul, et exagitabat eum spiritus nequam, a Domino.
  15. Dixeruntque servi Saul ad eum : Ecce spiritus Dei malus exagitat te.
  16. Jubeat dominus noster, et servi tui, qui coram te sunt, quærent hominem scientem psallere cithara, ut quando arripuerit te spiritus Domini malus, psallat manu sua, et levius feras.
  17. Et ait Saul ad servos suos : Providete ergo mihi aliquem bene psallentem, et adducite eum ad me.
  18. Et respondens unus de pueris, ait : Ecce vidi filium Isai Bethlehemitem scientem psallere, et fortissimum robore, et virum bellicosum, et prudentem in verbis, et virum pulchrum : et Dominus est cum eo.
  19. Misit ergo Saul nuntios ad Isai, dicens : Mitte ad me David filium tuum, qui est in pascuis.
  20. Tulit itaque Isai asinum plenum panibus, et lagenam vini, et hædum de capris unum, et misit per manum David filii sui Sauli.
  21. Et venit David ad Saul, et stetit coram eo : at ille dilexit eum nimis, et factus est ejus armiger.
  22. Misitque Saul ad Isai, dicens : Stet David in conspectu meo : invenit enim gratiam in oculis meis.
  23. Igitur quandocumque spiritus Domini malus arripiebat Saul, David tollebat citharam, et percutiebat manu sua, et refocillabatur Saul, et levius habebat : recedebat enim ab eo spiritus malus.
1 Samuel 16 Text (KJV)
  1. And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.
  2. And Samuel said, How can I go? if Saul hear it, he Will kill me. And the LORD said, Take an heifer with thee, and say, I am come to sacrifice to the LORD.
  3. And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will shew thee what thou shalt do: and thou shalt anoint unto me him whom I name unto thee.
  4. And Samuel did that which the LORD spake, and came to Bethlehem. And the elders of the town trembled at his coming, and said, Comest thou peaceably?
  5. And he said, Peaceably: I am come to sacrifice unto the LORD: sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice. And he sanctified Jesse and his sons, and called them to the sacrifice.
  6. And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the LORD's anointed is before him.
  7. But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.
  8. Then Jesse called Abinadab, and made him pass before Samuel. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
  9. Then Jesse made Shammah to pass by. And he said, Neither hath the LORD chosen this.
  10. Again, Jesse made seven of his sons to pass before Samuel. And Samuel said unto Jesse, The LORD hath not chosen these.
  11. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Are here all thy children? And he said, There remaineth yet the youngest, and, behold, he keepeth the sheep. And Samuel said unto Jesse, Send and fetch him: for we will not sit down till he come hither.
  12. And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
  13. Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
  14. But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.
  15. And Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.
  16. Let our lord now command thy servants, which are before thee, to seek out a man, who is a cunning player on an harp: and it shall come to pass, when the evil spirit from God is upon thee, that he shall play with his hand, and thou shalt be well.
  17. And Saul said unto his servants, Provide me now a man that can play well, and bring him to me.
  18. Then answered one of the servants, and said, Behold, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, that is cunning in playing, and a mighty valiant man, and a man of war, and prudent in matters, and a comely person, and the LORD is with him.
  19. Wherefore Saul sent messengers unto Jesse, and said, Send me David thy son, which is with the sheep.
  20. And Jesse took an ass laden with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a kid, and sent them by David his son unto Saul.
  21. And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his armourbearer.
  22. And Saul sent to Jesse, saying, Let David, I pray thee, stand before me; for he hath found favour in my sight.
  23. And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.
